Playful, Educational, and Enlivening

Using time-honored practices and modern techniques, teacher trainees learn to facilitate creative and educational experiences through a method that aligns with the developmental needs of children. No prior yoga experience is necessary; we will teach you what you need to know.

Next Generation Yoga (NGY) offers a variety of tools and strategies to empower you to create meaningful kids’ yoga and mindfulness encounters. Experienced trainers share their own passion for this work as they facilitate a fun and inspiring training curriculum. Trainees are given opportunities to observe, learn, and develop original strategies to bring the benefits of yoga and mindfulness to children.

  • Learn the benefits of yoga and mindfulness and the developmental needs and typical behavior of kids age 2 to 12.
